SuperSport United vs Gaborone United predictions

Prediction 1: SuperSport United to reign supreme

While we think that it's going to be a win for SuperSport United at the end of this one, we also think they'll not have it very easy.

Granted, Matsatsantsa lost their last match to Chippa United in the league, the prospect of playing in the group stage of the Confederation Cup is one that will serve as motivation for the side to get the job done in front of their home fans.

They were the better side in the first leg and we expect them to continue on the front foot against the Botswana side.

Prediction 2: SuperSport United to score first

Gavin Hunt's men have opened the scoring on two occasions in their last three matches going into this second leg.

While we fancy the visitors to have some moments of their own, we think SuperSport will dominate on the day enough to draw the first blood. And why not? They have the home support right behind them.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 Total Goals

Matsatsantsa are coming from a 1-0 loss to Chippa United in the league to make it the third time in four games they've been involved in an underscoring affair.

Similarly, Gaborone United have only managed one over 2.5 game in their last four matches. We expect a low-scoring result as both teams seek for a place in the next stage.

SuperSport United vs Gaborone United Head-to-Head

This fixture has occurred three times since 2014. SuperSport United have won two while one game ended in a draw. At home, Hunt's men have a chance to extend their head-to-head advantage over the visitors.

SuperSport United recent form

SuperSport have won two, lost two and drawn one out of five last games. They've been hot and cold in recent weeks, beating Kaizer Chiefs along the way, and must find a way to maintain consistency if they're to go far this season.

Gaborone United recent form

The Botswana league has not resumed, as such, Gaborone have only played three games so far this season with a win, a loss and a draw.
